Fishing Loch Ken

Park Facilities Image

Loch Ken enjoys a good reputation among anglers, particularly because of the pike, roach, perch and now bream caught in recent seasons. Catches indicate an increase in the size of fish being taken. Game fishing has also taken place at Loch Ken over many years.

Anyone fishing our stretch at the Loch Ken Holiday Park may have two lines maximum in the water at any one time. Other rods, although not actually fishing, must not occupy pegs on the bank.

Fish should always be returned to the water in a healthy state.

Fishing is allowed by permit only. Fishing permits are available at the shop, or in advance. The permits we issue are for our frontage only.

    The location is amazing with the touring site overlooking the banks of Loch Ken. The staff are friendly & could not be more helpful. A totally relaxing place to visit.

    Stayed here for a week two adults & two kids, absolutely loved it. Beautiful location right on the shores of Loch Ken with fantastic views. The tent pitches were massive & the site was kept very clean and tidy

    Great stay in our motor home, friendly staff, modern, clean facilities, plenty to do on site, play parks, fishing, boat hire, and a well stocked shop. An ideal base for touring the Galloway Forrest Park. We'll definitely return!

    First stop on our motor home trip around Scotland and it set the standard for the rest of our camp site visits. A beautifully laid out site, quality amenities and great hosts, with a Loch-side position, it can't get much better!
